looked at -- the data looks at english prime ministers and american presidents. how many of them lost a parent in childhood. look, we have obama, clinton is a fascinating case of someone who suffer this is extraordinary blow very early on in his life -- >> rose: his father was killed before he was born. >> and he grows up in an environment without that kind of safety net. and what does it do? it seems to have given him a kind of strength. you see that pattern again and again and again. >> rose: do you think that's the majority patern? >> no, i don't. i make the same argument with dyslexia where there's a minority pattern where you see a very large number of successful entrepreneurs have dyslexia. that's not the common response. and if you talk to them you'll say -- they'll say i am who i am because of my dyslexia not in spite of it. nonetheless, it's fascinating to see this bimodal response to what we would ordinary consider just to be a setback. >> rose: do you think that -- it's often said that some or a large percentage or at least a majority of comedians come to comedy out of pain
time, americans -- the problem with trying to repeal obama care beforehand was it was theoretical. i knew for, you know, forever that millions of americans were going to lose their health care and there'd be millions more. but it was theory. now americans are feeling the real disaster that the health care law is where we've got millions of americans losing the health care, losing access to the doctors and treatments that are keeping you alive. and that's going to have a negative impact on democrats trying to run for senate. let's face it. anybody that voted for that bill. anybody that mouthed those same words, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it, and there are plenty of senate democrats, house democrats that told that exact same untruth. let's put it that way. >> senator, assuming that the affordable care act does create some difficulties for democrats, particularly those seeking office, what should you -- what should republican party do to kind of advance its own cause between now and 2014 elections? >> well, i heard you earlier, it's -- it's difficult to repeal obama
here. americans are going to be outraged when they find out that so many of these things in obama care are covered by subsidies and that's wrong. >> including saving the companies. >> that's right. >> including saving -- >> the private marketplace but it's really not. it's subsidized so much. >> how about law firms next? all the popular companies. >> everyone knows that the insurance companies also pay back to the government. >> we don't know that. >> no -- >> they're not paying back that billion dollars. >> that's right. >> there are who visiprovisions >> no, it's because companies, but it's too bad. so that is going to -- taxpayers. >> you'll have another whack at the ball. jimmy, tracy, lenwood is going to stick around with us. now let's get back to the big jobs report that set off even bigger stock rally today. we'll debate those jobs' numbers and the economy just ahead. >>> later on, the republican party chairman says obama care was designed to quote, screw over young people. end quote. his phrase, not mine. we'll going to have to cover that story as well. and don't forget, free m
we get a higher minimum wage for hard working americans across the internet. >> president obama supports a $10.10 on minimum wage. certainly never mind $7.25. any sort of rates for their workers would end up getting passed down to the consumer in the way of higher prices for food. there are no hard numbers on this, but a burger would go anywhere from $3 to $3.50. that's the big debate. how big of a deal is that if the price of a burger goes up 50 cents? a lot of labor experts say it's not that big of a deal because a lot of these fast food workers use about $7 billion in social services a year. if they need less in those social services, you'll pay less into those social services, basically raising the bottom raises the whole. the protests are scheduled to start around 11:30. we'll see how it goes. >> katie, thanks so much. our katie tur. >>> dominick has a special retail story. >> let's check out what's happening with francesco's. you can see there right now, certainly not a good story for those ipo investors. back over to you. >> thanks a lot. i want to turn our attention back

reason. john i think put it brilliantly what obama did when he came in the power. he was these extremely different american president at the iranians just could not wrap their heads around. because he was quoting the persian poets and speaking well, and his middle name was hussein. and as a result of that and the fact that the president then really tried with diplomacy wands, it failed, but a narrative that god created, largely true, perhaps partly exaggerated, was that it fell through because of the iranians. as a result the president could go very efficiently and tell the rest of the world to agree to sanctions, that they never had agreed to before. at the bush administration didn't even dare to dream about because the bush administration has no legitimacy on the international scene at that time. they could agree to because there was a sense that the united states actually tried. the united states was the good guy. rouhani is nothing the taxing trek on the united states. he is tweeting rosh hashanah, greetings to the jewish people. his foreign minister is extremist sophisticated and ch
